So I found out today I will be going part-time on May 9th. I had been thinking about this for quite sometime now but I woke up a couple of weeks ago and realized that it was something that I needed to do. Don't get me wrong, I know I am blessed to have a job in the current economy....but my family needs me more right now. I love being a Mommy and I hope to have more children one day, but there are just somethings that people don't tell you. And I don't think it would really matter, its just something you have to learn for yourself. ITS HARD!!!!! I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world, but juggling a marriage, a full-time job, a child, and keeping your house in somewhat livable condition is not easy! My husband rotates shifts between days and nights, and there are days when we only see each other for a few minutes. We have gone WEEKS without even going out to or no baby. I think back to the past few months, and I feel guilty. This past Christmas was Aniston's first Christmas. Her ONLY first Christmas she will ever have. And we never took the time to go to see Santa. (Yes, I know that this isn't what Christmas is about, but its just one of those traditions I wanted to start) We never had a day off together to take her. We have wanted to get her ears pierced for quite some time now, and we don't have time. Thats sad. There arent many things in the past year other than my maternity leave that includes both Mommy & Daddy. One of us is ALWAYS working. Thats about to change. It may mean that I have to become one those super thrifty moms, and I may have to clip more coupons, and budget alot better. But I am determined to do more things this summer as a family. Day trips, getting our house back in order, working in the yard......and enjoying every single moment with our precious angel! 
Sneak peek at her Easter/Birthday pictures....more to come!

Its been a while.....

I am such a blogging slacker. For some reason I just could never get into it but I making a vow this time to post at least once a week. (I know those that follow my blog have heard that before, for I am gonna try REALLY hard!) The past few months, have flown by. I can't believe that our little Princess will be a year old in less than 3 weeks! So, soon after her first Christmas, I began planning her birthday party. Its bittersweet....we have so much to look forward to but its sad that my sweet little baby girl is well, no longer a baby. Several co-workers were pregnant with me, all due with in weeks of each other. We missed the first birthday party of the group ( Sorry, Liliana!), but we did go to Brandi's little girl, Aydson's first birthday party this past Saturday. I don't think it really hit me how fast time has flown until we were all standing around, and everyone was singing 'Happy Birthday'. Little Adyson, was in front of her cake in her highchair just as sweet and innocent as ever. And I suddenly felt like I was in this whirlwind. I can remember the exact moment that we each found out each other were pregnant. Her 10 weeks, me 8. I had to fight tears because I looked down at Aniston, who was sitting at my feet with her little 'Birthday Diva' party hat on and I realize that exacly 3 weeks from that moment, it would be her. We would be the ones videotaping, laughing and watching our sweet little girl digging into her 1st birthday cake....

I think maybe Aniston & Lili were wondering where the cake was?

I think she liked it :)

 Hopefully my next post will be some pictures to catch up on the past few months!
